about

The compositions found on these 21 albums (see below) form an intriguing part of my musical oeuvre. There simply has not been enough time to write individual liner notes, so this will suffice for now. In some ways, I think of the compositions here as gypsies, eluding being placed on earlier albums for various reasons.

Encompassing the years 1989 to 1994, all the music here is for my second meruvina incarnation (there are four incarnations to date) prior to my transformative studies with Harihar Rao, the senior disciple of Ravi Shankar. You are invited to peruse and consider these 21 albums of vagabond compositions, perhaps even finding some you prefer over all my other work.
